Cypriots help plant lake trees in England April 15, 2007

Cypriot volunteers on an exchange visit have helped boost the tree population at a Lake District beauty spot.

The six foresters planted broadleaf saplings around Bassenthwaite as part of the nine-week skills-sharing visit. Last month a team of six foresters from the Lake District National Park Authority visited Cyprus to explore mountain and national park schemes.

The Lake District trip is being funded by the EU’s Leonardo da Vinci education and culture programme.

Martin Clark, scheme organiser, said: “We have already established firm links with the national park region of Cyprus, which includes the Troodos mountains, and hope this visit will encourage stronger ties on a whole range of similar projects.”
